A Message from Ms. Reynolds:
Dear UAB Opera Fans!
You may have heard by now that we have hired Dr. Bonnie Pomfret to
teach applied voice and opera at UAB this year. She will be a
terrific addition to our faculty. However, she has the daunting task
of choosing literature and casting a production to be presented on
November 3 and 5!! To that end, we are requesting that each of you
come in and sing one selection on Friday, August 4 in order that the
lead roles can begin learning their parts. Auditions will be between
noon and 2:00 (in 5 minute increments). I (Ms. Reynolds) will be
there to accompany. Please choose one opera aria to perform if you
are interested in a role....an art song will be sufficient if you are
just interested in participating in the chorus.
PLEASE CALL NORA in the Music Office (934-7376) to schedule an
audition time. It is not imperative for those of you who live out of
town to come, but it would be helpful if you COULD come if you are
interested in a major role. Please make this a priority so that we
can help make this process as easy as possible for Dr. Pomfret as we
welcome her to UAB!
Thanks in advance for your participation!
